Everett was founded in 1893. Originally a booming mill town, Everett has since transformed, becoming home to Boeing Airplanes and the largest marina on the West Coast. It stands between the Puget Sound and Snohomish River Valley, with the Olympic Mountains to the west and Cascades to the east. Gorgeous days in Everett often make you feel like you’re living inside a gigantic postcard. The view is only getting better! With cranes in the air, hundreds of new housing units, and multiple businesses opening, this old mill town is growing better by the day. Don’t believe us? Check out more reviews from our friends at
Young Life has been present in the community for the past 50 years and has a rich history of quality ministry. We are committed to reaching the “furthest out” kids and are also committed to discipleship and spiritual health of our volunteers and staff. The Everett/Mill Creek area is made up of almost every school that surrounds the three large public high schools. Currently there are three Young Life teams and two WyldLife clubs (serving four schools). There is a healthy donor base and we are currently developing a strong committee.
